Community Events – where are you?

I stopped by a community event in Kerrisdale today. For those that don’t know, Kerrisdale is an affluent area within Vancouver that is hard to find a livable home under 1 million dollars (CDN or USD). My big question is – where are the Realtors?

With a few thousand people on a single street, all within walking distance home owners or potential home owners – you would think Realtors would be all over the place. Instead, there were Kerrisdale businesses and charities on the street showcasing their brands and products. Why are there no Realtors visible? Where are the real estate companies? I thought about this during my visit to Kerrisdale, so I took my dog and wondered around as I thought maybe I had not seen them yet…..

I did see Daniel Lavery‘s baseball team – which was great. He is a sponsor of a little league team in Kerrisdale and his team was in the Kerrisdale Day Parade holding his sign. Great Work!

A few Sutton balloons were seen, but I did not see where they were handing them out.

In my opinion, this is an excellent venue for real estate involvement. Where are the real estate companies? Why do you not have a big tent? a ride for kids? a visible presence?

Here are a few pictures from the event:

    Great post – community events, parades, beach clean ups – all great places to be a part of the community and soft sell your brand. Or blog. They could have been exclusive at this event, save for some balloons.

    hmmmm-good point-I will see if we can get a Macdonald Realty booth out there since our office is just down the street (there are tons of real estate offices nearby so very good point!)
